Warning Siren

Obscured by the horde, listening for
a warning siren, hungering for the
unreachable space.

A rabbit listens for a warning siren

    Just read a book with my youngest, of a very nasty witch who likes to eat bunny rabbits more than anything. So the rabbits come up with a plan to outsmart her, and replace all the real bunnies with stuffed toys.Only one, very brave rabbit stays put to watch out and warn the others in case she realizes the deception and wreaks havoc. And I think your photo shows exactly this one brave bunny whose name I already forgot. 🙂 Great photo, Rick!

    Hi Rick, just checked the title of the book I was talking about for you, it is called “The Witch Family” by Eleanor Estes. 🙂 Have a lovely evening!
